    I was fortunate enough to start with the company around the time it started growing quickly which means there was opportunity for growth and the salary was good.

    Weak management and management conflicts in some departments

    Pros

    Great work environment. There are lots of opportunities as well as support from management for success. The company is very forward thinking as they start transforming into new services and cloud organization.

    Cons

    No Cons. I am very happy working for and with this company.

    I worked at ShoreGroup full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Management is very supportive of employee aspirations and has a positive working environment that allows employees to develop their skills.

    Cons

    Very little downside to working at ShoreGroup with the exception that as an organization, they are not large enough to offer many opportunities for upward mobility. Employees coming to ShoreGroup should understand that it may be many years before an opportunity to move up in a career path becomes available.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I would have for ShoreGroup would be to start looking at M&A opportunities to grow beyond its regional boundaries.

    I have been working at ShoreGroup full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Not many. Maybe money, but not worth the pain. A few good people left, but most are looking to get out.

    Cons

    The development practice lead just quit leaving no one with development experience on staff. They're not backfilling any engineering positions, just turning to offshore subs.

    VP of sales left last week. Not long before I'm out the door too. The people that are left seem to be waiting for the end.

    Advice to Management

    None at this point.

    I worked at ShoreGroup full-time

    Pros

    salary is decent and offer certifications which can lead you on to a better career

    Cons

    Not a class act at all. Management allows its favorites to speak and treat others with disrespect (swearing at people, calling them names - c'mon guys you can do better). Rasies are promised but NEVER given. Place runs in the gray, asks employees to lie to customers for their benefit. Management definitely has it's favorites and likes to replace senior employees with lower paid less skilled workers. Ship seems to be sinking fast and is now outsourcing work.

    Advice to Management

    Need to treat your dedicated employees better. Get rid of the tyrant management style that oversees many of the professional depts.

    Great work environment. Customers love doing business with us. Management is very supportive and involved in helping me be successful

    Tough market and I need to work on selling value

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing in support of our customers. Keep the information flow coming to the entire ShoreGroup team

    Pros

    Technically able to work remotely (although this Pro was granted subjectively to "certain people" and not across the board). A few good people to work with...at least the ones that weren't engineers.

    Cons

    Upper Mgmt. was awful. Didn't care at all about keeping people engaged and happy. It's a 24x7 job and can be very thankless. Mgmt. needs to do a better job to mitigate that. Many of the engineers have huge ego's and run around on power trips. Poor communication. But again, if you're an engineer (a good one), you don't have to communicate as it is often overlooked because they are delicate geniuses. What they don't realize, as smart as they are, is that communication is KEY to the success if any business.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to keep employees engaged. This is a service based business and if you're rotating Service Managers (due to turnover or CSAT issues) with your clients, you're going to be fighting an uphill battle to keep them (clients) satisfied.

    I have been working at ShoreGroup (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    None
    Shoregroup has split into two companies. Optanix is great company to work for. Before the split, they were the day 2 side of the company. Shoregroup is now somewhat of a small business Cisco partner.

    Cons

    I will be leaving soon
    The company does not have the engineering skillset to deliver on most solutions
    The managers working out of the New York City office are unprofessional and don't understand how to retain employees. As of recent 1 AM and 2 SE's have left all in 1-2 months.
    People are complacent with incompetence and inefficiencies.
    I see people come and go. Just avoid the interview because they will put on a show for you to come to the company.

    Advice to Management

    John Mcarthy needs to hire new personnel on the Pre and Post sales side.
